Critical Encounters: Design Innovation
Metcalf Auditorium and Chace Galleries
In conjunction with the exhibition, Gorham Silver: Designing Brilliance 1850-1970, explore the history and impact of the Providence-based Gorham Manufacturing on industry, innovation, technology, and artistry in this day-long gathering. Through presentations and gallery conversations historians, curators, and designers examine the cultural and economic context that led to the remarkable growth and global influence of Gorham. Silversmiths involved in Gorham’s recent history use historical examples on view to lead explorations of silver processes and techniques.
